I personally would have thought it reasonably clear that an XPath expression
between curly braces in an AVT is "an XPath expression contained in [that]
attribute": though if other people feel it needs spelling out then we can spell
it out.

I'm not happy about the addition "The attribute does not affect other names
<new>that are used solely for cross reference purposes in stylesheet-defined
objects</new>..." As written, we've listed all the places that *are* affected,
and the final sentence says that if the name isn't in one of the places listed
above, then it isn't affected. The "other names" referred to here is a much
broader list than your clause suggests, for example it includes attribute names
in path expressions, names of output methods, etc. With your change, it's not
clear whether names appearing in neither list are affected or not.
